HTC today announced Best Deals, a new service that delivers personalised money-saving deals direct to your HTC smartphone.
Categorized by your preferences and interests, this service uses your location to bring you all of the best discounts in your area. Preferred deals can be reviewed, bookmarked or shared with a single click; they can also be sorted by popularity, discount, price and expiration date.
â€œHTC strives to deliver the best web content and services to its customers,â€ says CÃ©dric Mangaud, Vice President of Value-Added Services for HTC. â€œWeâ€™re excited to be launching a service that gives you the very best deals, in line with your own personal interests, wherever you are.â€
HTC has built partnerships with 12 leading deal providers across the five launch markets, UK, Italy, Germany, France and Spain, including LivingSocial, that will provide four of the five markets with deals, Trip Advisor, Qype Deals and Offerum.* Best Deals customers will have access to thousands of local offers and will also benefit from exclusive deals for a range of HTC products and accessories.
â€œHTCâ€™s dedication to providing personalised experiences fits perfectly with the diversity of our handpicked deals service,â€ says Peter Briffett, Managing Director for the UK and Ireland at LivingSocial. â€œOur wide range of location-based offers will allow HTC smartphone owners to take advantage of hundreds of deals in their local area, from Michelin-starred dining and luxury spas to supercar racing days and hot air balloon rides.â€
HTC will continue to secure a range of additional deal categories after launch by establishing new partnerships with a number of providers and mobile operators.
The Best Deals application will be available on the new HTC One X+, and the Windows Phone 8X and 8S which launch in November. A total of 1,700 deals and offers will be available at launch.
